I started on Humira Jan 20, and like Ne Ne, I'm just now starting to see some improvement from it. I had some pretty bad side effects from the Humira at first, but had zero side effects from my latest shot (this past Saturday). I'm tapered back down to 20 mg of prednisone now, and am hopeful that I'll have enough benefit from the Humira and Azasan now to stay at or below 20 mg of pred. The last two times I tapered to 20 mg, the CD symptoms came back within a week. I'm at day five now at 20 mg, and still holding remission. Humira seems to work very quickly in some people, and very slowly in others. Since I have great insurance coverage, it's not costing me much to just stay the course and accept whatever relief it can give.

Entocort 9 mg/day, Pentasa 4 gm/day, started Humira 1/22/08, started 100 mg of Azasan (Imuran) 2/20/08. I'm convinced that Prednisone is the root of all evil, and primarily responsible for global warming.
